Informed by experts in youth concussion from the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Concussion Centre, the Concussion handbook is designed to help with your
management and recovery.
Whether you’re a kid or teenager
recently suffered a concussion, or a parent of someone dealing
concussion, the management techniques laid out in this
handbook can help to speed up the path to recovery.
Recovery times from concussion can vary from
days to weeks to
months, and while some of that is based on the injury itself,
you can also help
improve your recovery time by resting your brain and body. You
can also accidentally
prolong your recovery by doing too much too soon, suffering
or if you have other complicating factors such as: ADHD,
headaches, sleep or emotional problems.
